it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will see and hear more about losing presence in areas like the persian gulf? >> i think have much so. you have got republicans want to go pull back on sequestration. you have got the democrats wanting to. i think this is posturing for the white house trying to show republicans who are ostensibly the pro-defense party, we are going to make cutbacks in areas you don't want to cutback if the sequestration doesn't go through. martha: defense is one of the most important parts of the budget. if the see questionser kicks in is it an across th

political guru to bill clinton, predicted a landslide victory for mitt romney. a landslide. well, we all know how that turned out. dick morris, how are you? >> well, i'm a little battered and bleeding, but -- >> before we go any further, let's watch a bit of the moment you never want to relive. this is one of your great predictions. >> going to win by a landslide. the -- it will be the biggest surprise in recent american political history. it will rekindle a whole question as to why the media played this race as a nail-biter where in fact i think romney's going to win by quite a bit. my own view is that romney is going to carry 325 electoral votes. >> i mean, look, to be honest with you, i feel painful listening to that. god knows how you feel. i mean, with hindsight, were you bluffing? did you believe this? or is there any rational explanation for why you got it so wrong? >> oh, i absolutely believed it. and so did a lot of people. rasmussen and gallup both predicted a romney victory. and piers, cnn had a 47/47 tie race in its final poll 48 hours before the polls opened. >> what do you
not to renew his contract. dick morris who first achieved fame as an adviser to bill clinton and then desperately clung to fame as an attacker of bill clinton and hillary clinton, and all democrats. and he will surely resurface somewhere, somehow. in the meantime, we'll always have our memories of dick. >> this was an unbelievable win for sarah palin. in fact, i think that it unveils a level of skill in communication that i really have not seen since ronald reagan. she is a superstar. her ability to bypass the conventional wisdom of washington, her ability to speak in a tone, and a genre, a style that was so authentic and so outside of the mainstream was just unbelievable, barack obama may be the first anti-american president we have had. i guarantee you, sean, based on what i have heard from third parties that i have spoken to that william jefferson clinton will cast his ballot for mitt romney, i can't account the two differences because there are so many differences that go into it. they under state the romney vote and overstate the obama vote because they're using a 2008 m
in charge with the people on the ground. >> would you say secretary clinton in charge. >> pardon me? >> was secretary clinton in charge. >> the people in charge, were the ambassador there at benghazi. >> no. but, they can't, you know, they were trying to save their lives. rick: richard grenell, a former spokesperson for the last four u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. byron york, is chief political correspondent at the "washington examiner". gentlemen, good to see you both. rick, you first. you worked at a number of administrations. odd that the president himself would be so hands off while one of our consulates was under attack? >> yeah, very odd. i think it's, mitt romney was right. it really was a weak response from the president. he was off in vegas at a fund-raiser. the simple fact is, they took a couple pictures in the oval office where secretary panetta was briefing the president. but the president was hands off. the other thing we learned, secretary clinton was hand off. these employees that were under attack were state department employees. where was secretary clinton? she didn't
with president clinton along with big spending cuts. >> right. >> it was a deficit reduction package that worked. they continued to do more deficit reducing package with newt gingrich on the spending side throughout the decade and we're on our way to a surplus. >> that's right. i've been calling it the undecade, the 1990s has been written out of their record. they would have you believe that it was always the way it was under reagan and then bush. >> why don't they just say, leave off the clinton tax increase, which helped a lot, and just claim they did it for spending cuts? >> because if they do, if they admit that something nice happened in the '90s, they have to say, what happened after 2000. because by making it everybody's fault, everybody is to blame, they make it nobody is to blame which means they themselves is not to blame. a lot of centrists have adopted this theory, too. the fact of the matter is, there are distinct periods of responsibility and irresponsibility. >> there is this constant lie that you hear and it's taken as conventional wisdom. reagan went along with the tax increases
and '80s, they lost the popular vote in a number of elections. it was five or six before bill clinton won in 1992. and the organization that came out of that is the democratic leader organization. that was a policy organization. it had a big messaging component. but the main work of that group was to try to wrench the democratic party to what they felt was the center on a variety of fairly significant policies, ranging from health care to welfare to how to deal with budgets and taxes. there doesn't seem to be at this point a deal on the right. there is a belief that you need to talk to the center better and reach out to more people. but there is not a belief that sort of mirrors reforming welfare, changing it as we know it or reforming it as we know it. >> quite the opposite. you mentioned jim demint take over the heritage foundation, he is convinced that republicans on policy are completely right. he said in an interview today with scott rasmussen in the pollsters, which is democrats give money. that is not true, he is repeating what worked in the 2010 elections, the problem is democrats
was to the right of hillary clinton during the xanl for going into pakistan and not -- he -- >> john mccain. >> on pakistan he was, right. this shouldn't be that big of a surprise that he is hawkish. this has been one of the central tensions, but sort of aspects of the obama presidency. >> i hear what you're saying. at the same time, you know, he came into office under the banner of no longer will there be black sites. we are closing gitmo. extraordinary rendition. these kind of practices put in place by george w. bush. that is going to be -- we're going to close that chapter in american history. what this reveals is that that chapter is far from being closed. it's still being written. >> we are still arguing based on the movie "zero dark thirty" whether or not enhanced interrogation, torture, helped us get osama bin laden, and you hear conflicting reports about whether or not that was true. if you ask the average person, does interrogation enhance interrogation, does torture work? you'll get ten different anz. we are as a country very much grappling with these questions and trying to s

, a position that this morning's test held under of another georgetown alumnus, bill clinton. our catholic and jesuit identity ask of all of us, our students as well as faculty, to seek a better, more just world. something special that we have that encourages and motivates so many of our alumni for public service. let me turn to our guest today, and alumnus of another just we university, santa clara. his early work in public service was as an aide to then thomas kidd coal of california, and as an assistant to the secretary of health education and welfare. he later became director of the u.s. office of civil rights, just a few years after the passage of the civil rights act. in the '60s, he served as an army intelligence officer and was honored with the army commendation medal. secretary panetta served in the u.s. house of representatives for more than 15 years before he became director of the office of management and budget under president clinton who was so impressed by his leadership and dedication that he asked him to serve as his chief of staff. after secretary panetta left the white h
from texas who has stumbled a bit. rubio has been more of the barack obama and hillary clinton model. he's been careful about how he uses that star power and also his opponent is probably paul ryan, who i thought gave a very weak speech at the national review institute. rubio is coming with new ideas and new ideas that will move his party to the center. outstanding choice. >> on immigration reform, he's joined forces with some democrats, comprehensive immigration reform. senator vitter of louisiana calls him naive. so he's getting some criticism from the right. >> naive for some means hopeful and optimistic for others and i think that's what some republicans have been lacking. we've been painted in the times, rightly so, that we're only the guys in suits and business men in an old world. are we the party for everyone? do we have an offer of better way for everyone in the united states, not just our alleged 53% which we didn't even have? and rubio, i think, speaks to that. >> he's got to be really careful in giving that republican response to the president's state of the union address
but at a lower level. that's not pro life. >> let me talk about what i'm talking about. when billion clinton took office, there were 1.4 million abortions, now there's 700,000. because of adoption procedures, counselling, birth control. notification. the republican party needs to make abortion illegal to making it rare. >> when you say turning it from legal to rare, what you're moving from is pro life to pro choice in the debate. you can't be. you're either or, you either believe it should be legal or you don't. >> you move your position. >> i believe it's a practical matter with the republican party. if they focus on overturning roe, they're whistling in the wind, they know that. >> as a party's position, and they have to be clear about this, so the women you're talking about, if you're disenfranchised by the party, know exactly what they stand for. what you're saying is, they need to move from pro life to pro choice, albeit, trying to reduce the numbers? >> yes. >> is that right? >> explain to me why i'm wrong. >> i don't hear my own words coming out of my mouth. >> explain to me why i'm wrong.
, with a number of the university's distinguished alumni. in particular president clinton, and he and i during the time i was both o.m.b. director and then as his chief of staff, would spend many hours of conversation talking about his experience as a southern baptist getting a catholic education. he talked about it a lot. and also during my time, obviously, in the obama administration i greatly benefited from many of the georgetown graduates. i had the honor to have someone as my chief of staff, jeremy bash, who graduated here from georgetown, serve as my chief of staff at the c.i.a. and then followed me to the pentagon as my chief of staff. and also someone who's had a public affairs at the pentagon, george little, who is also someone who both graduated and later taught here at georgetown. talented young individuals who have been at my side every day for the last four years at both the c.i.a. and the pentagon, and i am deeply grateful for their work for me and on behalf of the nation and i am deeply grateful for georgetown for training such extraordinary public servants. and speaking of extr
on him, frankly. i mean, i think if i was trying to imagine if hillary clinton or michelle florida had seemed as unprepared as he had been. yes, the senate was grandstanding. >> we agree, right? >> let's just say that he had eight weeks to prepare for these kinds of grandstanding attacks, fair or unfair, and he has seemed completely blindsided by them. i mean, we haven't even mentioned the fact that he had to be passed a note about the policy on iran containment. that he misstated the administration's policy. i mean, yes, he is going to be confirmed. no one was particularly excited even the people who were in his camp when it comes to defense spending. >> i mean, the main reason for this nomination was to stick a finger in john mccain's eye. they have succeeded in that. >> do you really think that? >> i don't think it's between obama and hagel. >> not the only -- >> i hope it's not. >> you -- you've -- you're known to orbit around the white house from time to time. >> right. >> when the soup of the day is particularly tasty. i'm kidding. this is all out of love. glen -- >> potato chedd
it was just a mistake. >>> hillary clinton's only been retired now for a few days, but her team has already launched a new website. take a peek. there it is. hillaryclintonoffice.com. and right now, there's not much to it, just a picture of the former secretary of state and a "contact" button. >>> tagg, not it. mitt romney's son says he will not run for the vacant massachusetts senate seat. he released a statement yesterday saying, "i love my home state and admit it would be an honor to represent the citizens of our great commonwealth. however, i am currently committed to my business and to spending as much time as i can with my wife and children." then there was the "boston herald's" weekend reporting that republicans want tagg's mom, ann romney, to run for that seat. she has not commented yet, but republicans probably shouldn't hold their breath on that one. but there is one republican tossing his hat into the ring, congressman paul broun. he is one of the most conservative members of the house, expected to announce his candidacy coming up tomorrow. >>> meanwhile, bill clinton says that b
to now, mr. speaker, insert my -- that involve the former secretary of state, mrs. clinton, during a recent senate hearing. a senator who was examining secretary clinton suggested or implied that the administration may have misstated the nature of the benghazi attack which mrs. clinton responded, what difference at this point does it make? i submit, mr. speaker, that the survivors of the four americans who were murdered at that attack would welcome any information, any and all information surrounding that infamous invasion. the survivors are grieving, and any information that could illuminate in any way this tragic -- the tragedy that occurred in benghazi would welcome any and all information, it seems to me. yes, secretary clinton, at this pount it may well make a difference -- point it make well make a difference. i yield back, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair recognizes the gentleman from massachusetts, mr. mcgovern, for five minutes. mr. mcgovern: i ask unanimous consent to address the house for five minutes and
would think twice if clinton was in the race. if she passes on it, it wouldn't mean a return to all male fields. kirst kirsten gillibran and amy klobuchar. this is a trend that will only go on in the weeks to come. democrats are leaning on them more than ever. and there are now a record number of female democrats 16 in what has been a long incubator of presidential candidates. the senate. and in the senate the majority is not comprised of white males. so one way or another, there will be at least one woman running for a serious campaign for the democratic nomination in 2016. and there'll only be more in the elections after that. expect similar if slower progress on the republican side. women have made strides there, too, but not as dramatically. only four republican women in the senate today. although the gop has the edge when it comes to female governors. this is what the future looks like. presidential fields that look a little more like america. that does it for "the cycle" today. martin, take it away. >> good afternoon. it's wednesday february 6th. and speaker john boehner has spoken
clinton. >> you have to ask questions to get answers. if you make statements in a congressional hearing you'll get statements filibustering back at you. lindsey graham said that the hagel nomination for secretary of defense would not make it on to the floor unless the armed services committee got testimony from leon panetta about benghazi. that looks to be in train and i think they will insist that that testimony take place before the committee itself votes on the hagel nomination. bill: just one more question here, very broadly speaking. we were just talking about the middle east. you could move south on that map and talk about the northern continent of africa. >> right. bill: what are we doing as a country to engage in either of these areas to make sure the problems of today do not get worse? >> we have no strategy. that's why i've been so concerned that the whole sweep from the atlanta coast of west africa, through the middle east, all the way over to pakistan is deteriorating from the proceed pebgt tiff the united states and its close allies. israel, arab countries in the region. th
. every budget summit that i had been a part of in the reagan years, first bush years, during the clinton administration, every budget summit we knew that defense had to play a role in trying to be able to control our deficits. soon after i became secretary, i was handed a number of $487 billion, almost half a trillion dollars that i was to cut out of the defense budget. it was contained in the budget control act, and i was required to be able to get that number of savings over the next 10 years. after a decade of blank check spending in the department of defense, it was important for us, the leaders of the department, chairman of the joint chiefs, the service chiefs, the service secretaries and myself who strongly believe that we had to meet this challenge of reducing the defense budget but we had to do it in a way that simply would not hallow out the force. we came out of every other period, every other war, we made the terrible mistake of hallowing out the force coming out of world war ii, coming out of korea, coming out of vietnam, coming out of the cold war. the attitude was, just cu
clinton unresolved yet is the issue of the keystone pipeline. we know that in the senate, john kerry has been a big champion of doing something about climate change. he's raised this issue. he's a true believer. he's been the leader of that and the united states senate hasn't been able to get legislation passed. what does this portend for him as secretary of state when the keystone pipeline comes to his desk for approval? >> well, as you say he has been one of the great champions of climate action and at the hearing, at the senate confirmation hearing, he said, you know, i would respectfully say to you that climate change is not something to be feared in response to. it is to be feared if we don't. i will be a passionate advocate on this, not based on ideology but based on facts and science. the keystone pipeline, you know, for your listeners is a pipeline that will enable a massive expansion of one of the dirtiest pools of carbon on the planet which is the mucky star sands of canada which they want to ship over here so that we'll refine it. it is, you know, an expansion of carbon pollut
